France rules out sending troops to Ukraine - foreign minister

France does not intend to send its troops to Ukraine, French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne said on the radio station France Inter.

“The French will not die for Ukraine. We will not send troops”, - he added.

On February 26, French President said that at a meeting in Paris, where representatives of about 20 Western countries discussed further support for Ukraine in the conflict with Russia, the issue of the possible dispatch of Western ground forces to Ukraine was raised.

According to Emmanuel Macron, the participants did not reach a consensus on this issue, but such a scenario cannot be ruled out in the future.
